The mook version of "The Dam Encyclopedia" supervised by Masaki Hagiwara, which was released in February 2017, will be reborn as a book version and released on June 1. The mook edition has been out of stock for a long time, causing it to be sold at a high price on Amazon, but this will be a safe purchase.

I also own the mook version, so I can tell you my impression of that one: "It contains all the contents of the dam," but the explanations are easy to understand, so even dam novices can read it with ease.

Among other things, the book delves not only into basic and specialized knowledge, but also into the negative and deep aspects of the dam opposition movement, the dam bursting accident, and the people involved with the dam, making it a very satisfying read.

The release date is June 1, 2020. Pre-orders have already begun at major online bookstores, and we hope you will be able to obtain a copy.

The following is quoted from the publisher (Jitsugyo no Nihonsha).
